The Office of Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India is facilitating the call for proposals for the Hydrogen Valley Platform in India by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India.
The objective of the platform is to demonstrate how the entire value chain of hydrogen (production, storage, and transportation) as an energy vector fit together in an integrated system approach. This concept is one of the main priorities of DST, GoI, and the industry for scaling-up hydrogen deployments and creating interconnected hydrogen ecosystems across India. It further aims to:
1. Improve research and innovation, including activities related to higher Technology Readiness Levels (TRL), the cost-effectiveness, efficiency, reliability, quantity, and quality of clean hydrogen solutions, including production, distribution, storage, and end uses.
2. Strengthen the knowledge and capacity of scientific and industrial actors along the hydrogen value chain, while supporting the uptake of industry-related skills.
3. Carry out demonstrations of clean hydrogen solutions with the view to local, regional, and nationwide deployment, aiming at assessing the resource availability, involving stakeholders, and addressing renewable production, distribution, storage, and use for transport and energy-intensive industries as well as other applications.
4. Increase public and private awareness, acceptance, and uptake of clean hydrogen solutions.
